Enjoy Your Videos on Top of Other Apps with Popcorn Player

So, the latest craze in the Android world, courtesy of Samsung when the Galaxy S3 was released, was the fact that you could now play videos without having to completely quit other apps. This is done by having a floating video player on top of whatever it is you have open on your device. Some people find this annoying, while others consider it the pinnacle of multi-tasking. Whatever your personal preference may be, unless you have a SGS3 or any device that supports this functionality (normally part of TouchWiz ROMs), you should not have to worry about it. However, if you are itching for it and really must watch YouTube clips while browsing XDA through the app, then keep on reading because XDA Forum Member twondcc (posted by Forum Member jeromyyap) has released something interesting for you.

Popcorn player is a video player that supports both online and offline video playback for a wide variety of formats. Having said that, the best part of this app is that the player will stay floating on top of your current window, playing while you do something else. The player window’s size can be easily adjusted via multitouch pinch gesture in case it becomes a little intrusive. Another set of interesting goodies is the fact that the app can have multiple windows simultaneously, it has bookmark features in case you need to stop your video, it can download video files, and it has a simple UI for ease of use. Best of all, the app is completely free and ad free as well!

Unfortunately, the app was taken out of the Play store due to issues (mainly since it can reproduce YouTube clips, Google does not allow it), but a download link can be found in this post. Please leave some feedback for the dev to better the app if needed.

PopCorn Player (Caramel) is a minimalistic and simple pop up player for Phones and Tablets with Android 4.0 and above.

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
